School Description

The designated Welsh-medium school, Ysgol Y Ferch o’r Sgêr, shares a site with Cornelly Primary School and Cornelly Integrated Children’s Centre in Bridgend. Currently, the school has 245 pupils, including 61 pupils in nursery and reception classes. The school serves a large area that includes Porthcawl, Kenfig Hill, Pyle and Cefn Cribbwr. The pupils are taught by ten full-time teachers and one part-time teacher and 11 assistants, in nine classes. The majority of pupils transfer to Ysgol Gyfun Gymraeg Llangynwyd at the end of their period in the school. The school is located in a disadvantaged area that is recognised as a ‘Communities First’ area and 19% of the pupils live in this area. Twelve per cent of pupils are entitled to free school meals which is below the county and national averages. Very few of the pupils speak Welsh at home and the percentage of pupils from an ethnic background is very low and is less than half of the local authority percentage. Fifteen per cent of pupils have assistance with additional learning needs, which is below the national figure. No pupil has a statement of special educational needs. No permanent exclusions were recorded in the year preceding the inspection but one temporary exclusion was recorded. Since the previous inspection, there have been considerable changes to the school’s teaching staff and both the headteacher and deputy headteacher have been in post for just over two years. In 2011-2012, the individual school budget for Ysgol Y Ferch o’r Sger is £3,037 per pupil. The maximum amount per pupil for Bridgend primary schools is £5,486 and the minimum is £2,737. Ysgol Y Ferch o’r Sger has the 38th highest school budget per pupil of the 52 primary schools in Bridgend.

The concentration of pupils shows likelihood of admission based on distance criteria

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the Pupil Level Annual School Census collected by the Welsh Government. The data tells us where pupils lived at the time of the last Pupil Census (released annually in July).

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our school catchment area guide for more information on heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the annual School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.
